Pours black with a good khaki head. From the aroma, I’m getting lots of coffee. It literally smells like a cup of coffee with just a touch of chocolate thrown in. With the taste, it is more of the same, but even more potent. The only difference is that more of the chocolate comes out. Of course, the aftertaste is coffee and chocolate with some bitterness at the end. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. There is a bit of carbonation in here as well. Overall, this one is straight forward with what it is trying to do and what it offers. And this is accomplished very well. Try this one for sure.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Tap at new bohemia in golden valley. 10oz pour. Black with small off white head. Smells of alcohol and chocolate . Smooth, sweet flavor with some chocolate elements. More flavor development as it warms. Good. Glad the devil made me do it.

On tap @ Radio Maria. Black and viscous with a persistent khaki head. Loads of creamy coffee character, silky mouthfeel, full and richly roasty, moderately bitter finish. Yum.

Pours a nice very dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is dark fruit. Taste is sweet roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate milk and a bit of espresso. Surprisingly smooth and creamy for the style.

Bottle shared with dusty and Brian...nose is all coffee and a dark roast at that....taste mellows out a lot...more oatmeal comes and the coffee doesn’t dominate.

Amazing vanilla wood barrel and bourbon nose. With lots of coffee aroma. Coffee however on tongue is almost to strong. Still a great light sweetness and a great beer.
